+ 475 Imagine that everything you are typing is being read by the person you are applying to for your first job. Imagine that it's all going to be seen by your parents and your grandparents and your grandchildren as well. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 452 My real fantasy if I was to drop out would be to live in a mobile home and be a hippie and drive around festivals and have millions of children - children with dreadlocks and nose rings - and play the flute. Rachel Weisz


+ 470 It's important for me to show my children the richness of life and be a role model. I find that my organizational and management skills are tested more at home than at work! Susan Wojcicki


+ 432 Children smile 400 times a day on average... adults 15 times. Children laugh 150 times a day... adult 6 times per day. Children play between 4-6 hours a day... adults only 20 minutes a day. What's happened? Robert Holden, Living Wonderfully


+ 400 Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements. Napoleon Hill


+ 391 There is a slam-dunk case for extending foreign language teaching to children aged five. Just as some people have taken a perverse pride in not understanding mathematics, so we have taken a perverse pride in the fact that we do not speak foreign languages, and we just need to speak louder in English. Michael Gove


+ 406 One thing I've learned, in the face of all kinds of indignities, domestic workers take so much pride in their work and love the children they care for. Ai-jen Poo


+ 389 Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well. Aristotle


+ 368 Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own. Aristotle


+ 264 Time is a game played beautifully by children. Heraclitus


+ 323 Let parents bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit of reverence. Plato


+ 373 No man should bring children into the world who is unwilling to persevere to the end in their nature and education. Plato


+ 349 We ought to esteem it of the greatest importance that the fictions which children first hear should be adapted in the most perfect manner to the promotion of virtue. Plato


+ 465 The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.


+ 366 What then is the chastisement of those who accept it not? To be as they are. Is any discontented with being alone? let him be in solitude. Is any discontented with his parents? let him be a bad son, and lament. Is any discontented with his children? let him be a bad father.—"Throw him into prison!"—What prison?—Where he is already: for he is there against his will; and wherever a man is against his will, that to him is a prison. Thus Socrates was not in prison since he was there with his own consent.


+ 369 I have accepted a seat in the House of Representatives, and thereby have consented to my own ruin, to your ruin, and to the ruin of our children. I give you this warning that you may prepare your mind for your fate. John Adams


+ 382 As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children. John Adams


+ 326 The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it. Thomas Jefferson


+ 293 Be good children, and we shall all meet in Heaven... I want to meet you all, white and black, in Heaven. Andrew Jackson


+ 347 Oh, do not cry. Be good children, and we shall all meet in Heaven … I want to meet you all, white and black, in Heaven. Andrew Jackson


+ 494 Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well-wisher to his posterity swear by the blood of the Revolution never to violate in the least particular the laws of the country, and never to tolerate their violation by others. As the patriots of seventy-six did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the Constitution and laws let every American pledge his life, his property, and his sacred honor—let every man remember that to violate the law is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the charter of his own and his children's liberty. Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap; let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in primers, spelling-books, and in almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation; and let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay of all sexes and tongues and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars. While ever a state of feeling such as this shall universally or even very generally prevail throughout the nation, vain will be every effort, and fruitless every attempt, to subvert our national freedom. Abraham Lincoln


+ 426 If I saw a venomous snake crawling in the road, any man would say I might seize the nearest stick and kill it; but if I found that snake in bed with my children, that would be another question. I might hurt the children more than the snake, and it might bite them. Much more if I found it in bed with my neighbor's children, and I had bound myself by a solemn compact not to meddle with his children under any circumstances, it would become me to let that particular mode of getting rid of the gentleman alone. But if there was a bed newly made up, to which the children were to be taken, and it was proposed to take a batch of young snakes and put them there with them, I take it no man would say there was any question how I ought to decide! That is just the case! The new Territories are the newly made bed to which our children are to go, and it lies with the nation to say whether they shall have snakes mixed up with them or not. It does not seem as if there could be much hesitation what our policy should be! Abraham Lincoln


+ 358 It is the high privilege and sacred duty of those now living to educate their successors and fit them, by intelligence and virtue, for the inheritance which awaits them. In this beneficent work, sections and races should be forgotten and partisanship should be unknown. Let our people find a new meaning in the divine oracle which declares that "a little child shall lead them," for our own little children will soon control the destinies of the Republic. James A. Garfield


+ 366 My countrymen, we do not now differ in our judgment concerning the controversies of past generations, and fifty years hence our children will not be divided in their opinions concerning our controversies. They will surely bless their fathers and their fathers' God that the Union was preserved, that slavery was overthrown, and that both races were made equal before the law. We may hasten or we may retard, but we can not prevent, the final reconciliation. James A. Garfield


+ 319 To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 302 We must apply new political methods to meet the new political needs, or else we shall stiffer, and our children also. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 259 The country is the place for children, and if not the country, a city small enough so that one can get out into the country. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 293 The country is the place for children, and if not the country, a city small enough so that one can get out into the country. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 285 The thing I enjoyed most were visits from children. They did not want public office. Herbert Hoover


+ 317 In its broad aspects, the proper feeding of children revolves around a public recognition of the interdependence of the human animal upon his cattle. The white race cannot survive without dairy products. Herbert Hoover


+ 308 The best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it. Harry S. Truman


+ 311 I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it. Harry S. Truman


+ 333 Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal. John F. Kennedy


+ 334 Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. Ronald Reagan


+ 420 I'm convinced that today the majority of Americans want what those first Americans wanted: A better life for themselves and their children; a minimum of government authority. Very simply, they want to be left alone in peace and safety to take care of the family by earning an honest dollar and putting away some savings. This may not sound too exciting, but there is something magnificent about it. On the farm, on the street corner, in the factory and in the kitchen, millions of us ask nothing more, but certainly nothing less than to live our own lives according to our values — at peace with ourselves, our neighbors and the world. Ronald Reagan


+ 317 Are millions of men and women and children condemned by history or culture to live in despotism? Are they alone never to know freedom, and never even to have a choice in the matter? I, for one, do not believe it. I believe every person has the ability and the right to be free. George W.Bush


+ 341 A mother should give her children a superabundance of enthusiasm; that after they have lost all they are sure to lose on mixing with the world, enough may still remain to prompt fated support them through great actions. Augustus Hare


+ 340 I think we may be seeing the beginnings of a resurgence of civic-mindedness in this country. Hopefully the younger generations, which came out in record numbers during the last presidential election, will pass their enthusiasm on to their children. Sandra Day O'Connor


+ 335 Until he announced his immigration policy last week, Obama had the support of most Hispanic voters - but not the enthusiasm they had shown for him in 2008. That may be changing in part because of the decision not to deport young immigrants whose undocumented parents brought them here as children. Mara Liasson


+ 272 Children are a house's enemy. They don't mean to be - they just can't help it. It's their enthusiasm, their energy, their naturally destructive tendencies. Delia Ephron


+ 218 Once you have six children, you're committed. Angelina Jolie


+ 283 Children smile 400 times a day on average... adults 15 times. Children laugh 150 times a day... adult 6 times per day. Children play between 4-6 hours a day... adults only 20 minutes a day. What's happened? Robert Holden, Living Wonderfully


+ 396 In my opinion, condemning the Zionist movement as "nationalistic" is unjustified. Consider the path by which Herzl came to his mission. Initially he had been completely cosmopolitan. But during the Dreyfus trial in Paris he suddenly realized with great clarity how precarious was the situation of the Jews in the western world. And courageously he drew the conclusion that we are discriminated against or murdered not because we are Germans, Frenchmen, Americans, etc. of the "Jewish faith" but simply because we are Jews. Thus already our precarious situation forces us to stand together irrespective of our citizenship. Zionism gave the German Jews no great protection against annihilation. But it did give the survivors the inner strength to endure the debacle with dignity and without losing their healthy self respect. Keep in mind that perhaps a similar fate could be lying in wait for your children. Albert Einstein


+ 273 Study and in general the pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives. Albert Einstein


+ 395 My hair was pulled. I was hit with belts. So was the kid next door, and so was the kid next door. It was just the way it was. Many of the children I've seen were broken by their parents, which was the German-Austrian mentality. Break the will. They didn't want to create an individual.... It was all about conforming. I was one who did not conform and whose will could not be broken. Therefore I became a rebel. Every time I got hit, and every time someone said, 'You can't do this,' I said, 'This is not going to be for much longer, because I'm going to move out of here... of course, I had no plan how. Arnold Schwarzenegger


+ 424 I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Jesus


+ 262 It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.


+ 240 Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children and no theories. John Wilmot


+ 219 Today’s children do not wait for Santa to come, but they wait for their parents to leave.


+ 332 Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted, I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with lapis lazuli. I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones. All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace. Isaiah 54:11-13


+ 253 Best relationship: talk like best friends, play like children, argue like husband and wife, protect each other like brother and sister.


+ 311 There are only two types of honest people in this world: small children and drunk people.


+ 365 Are we, who want to create, in some way specially talented people? Or has everybody else simply given up, either by preassures of modesty or laziness, and closed their ears from their inner need to create, until that need has died, forgotten and abandoned? When you look at children, you start to think the latter. I still haven't met a child who doesn't love - or who at least hasn't loved - drawing, writing or some other creative activity. Natalia Laurila


+ 289 Writing for adults, you have to keep reminding them of what is going on. The poor things have given up using their brains when they read. Children you only need to tell things to once. Diana Wynne Jones


+ 322 Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society. Benjamin Franklin


+ 244 Women are nothing but machines for producing children. Napoleon


+ 277 There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago. Robert Oppenheimer


+ 227 Not to pass your children through the fire to Molech — Lev. 18:21


+ 208 To have children with one's wife — Gen. 1:28


+ 244 To send away the mother bird before taking its children — Deut. 22:6


+ 284 He would also say: One whose deeds exceed his wisdom, his wisdom endures. But one whose wisdom exceeds his deeds, his wisdom does not endure. He would also say: One who is pleasing to his fellow men, is pleasing to G-d. But one who is not pleasing to his fellow men, is not pleasing to G-d. Rabbi Dosa the son of Hurkinas would say: Morning sleep, noontime wine, children's talk and sitting at the meeting places of the ignoramus, drive a person from the world. Pirkei Avot 3:10


+ 372 He would also say: Beloved is man, for he was created in the image [of G-d]; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to him that he was created in the image, as it is says, "For in the image of G-d, He made man" (Genesis 9:6). Beloved are Israel, for they are called children of G-d; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they are called children of G-d, as it is stated: "You are children of the L-rd your G-d" (Deuteronomy 14:1). Beloved are Israel, for they were given a precious article; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they were given a precious article, as it is stated: "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it" (Proverbs 4:2). Pirkei Avot 3:14


+ 330 Rabbi Shimon the son of Judah would say in the name of Rabbi Shimon the son of Yochai: Beauty, strength, wealth, honor, wisdom, sageness, old age and children are becoming to the righteous and becoming to the world. As is stated (Proverbs 16:31): "Old age is a crown of beauty, to be found in the ways of righteousness." And it says (ibid. 20:29): "The beauty of youths is their strength, and the glory of sages is their age." And it says (ibid., 17:6): "The crown of sages are their grandchildren, and the beauty of children their fathers." And it says (Isaiah 24:23): "And the moon shall be abashed and the sun shamed, for the Lord of hosts has reigned in Zion, and before his elders is glory." Rabbi Shimon the son of Menasia would say: these seven qualities enumerated by the sages for the righteous were all realized in Rabbi [Judah HaNassi] and his sons. Pirkei Avot 6:8


+ 242 My children, listen to your father’s teaching; pay attention so you will understand. Mishlei 4:1


+ 234 Playing in the habitable world of His earth, and having my delights with the children of man. Mishlei 8:31


+ 235 And now, my children, hearken to me, and fortunate are those who observe my ways. Mishlei 8:32


+ 252 Wise children take their parents’ advice, but whoever makes fun of wisdom won’t listen to correction. Mishlei 13:1


+ 234 Good people leave their wealth to their grandchildren, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for good people. Mishlei 13:22


+ 264 If you do not punish your children, you don’t love them, but if you love your children, you will correct them. Mishlei 13:24


+ 260 Those who respect the Lord will have security, and their children will be protected. Mishlei 14:26


+ 195 Wise children make their father happy, but foolish children disrespect their mother. Mishlei 15:20


+ 279 A wise servant will rule over the master’s disgraceful child and will even inherit a share of what the master leaves his children. Mishlei 17:2


+ 243 Old people are proud of their grandchildren, and children are proud of their parents. Mishlei 17:6


+ 216 Foolish children make their father sad and cause their mother great sorrow. Mishlei 17:25


+ 268 Correct your children while there is still hope; do not let them destroy themselves. Mishlei 19:18


+ 227 The good people who live honest lives will be a blessing to their children. Mishlei 20:7


+ 265 Even children are known by their behavior; their actions show if they are innocent and good. Mishlei 20:11


+ 242 Train children to live the right way, and when they are old, they will not stray from it. Mishlei 22:6


+ 229 Don’t fail to punish children. If you spank them, they won’t die. Mishlei 23:13


+ 231 The father of a good child is very happy; parents who have wise children are glad because of them. Mishlei 23:24


+ 288 Children who obey what they have been taught are wise, but friends of troublemakers disgrace their parents. Mishlei 28:7


+ 240 Correction and punishment make children wise, but those left alone will disgrace their mother. Mishlei 29:15


+ 252 Correct your children, and you will be proud; they will give you satisfaction. Mishlei 29:17


+ 219 Her children speak well of her. Her husband also praises her, Mishlei 31:28


+ 369 Jerusalem! My Love,My Town
I wept until my tears were dry
I prayed until the candles flickered
I knelt until the floor creaked
I asked about Mohammed and Christ
Oh Jerusalem, the fragrance of prophets
The shortest path between earth and sky
Oh Jerusalem, the citadel of laws
A beautiful child with fingers charred
and downcast eyes
You are the shady oasis passed by the Prophet
Your streets are melancholy
Your minarets are mourning
You, the young maiden dressed in black
Who rings the bells at the Nativity Church,
On sunday morning?
Who brings toys for the children
On Christmas eve?
Oh Jerusalem, the city of sorrow
A big tear wandering in the eye
Who will halt the aggression
On you, the pearl of religions?
Who will wash your bloody walls?
Who will safeguard the Bible?
Who will rescue the Quran?
Who will save Christ, From those who have killed Christ?
Who will save man?
Oh Jerusalem my town
Oh Jerusalem my love
Tomorrow the lemon trees will blossom
And the olive trees will rejoice
Your eyes will dance
The migrant pigeons will return
To your sacred roofs
And your children will play again
And fathers and sons will meet
On your rosy hills
My town
The town of peace and olives
Nizar Qabbani


+ 319 One of the questions asked by al-Balkhi, and often repeated to this day, is this: Why do the children of Israel continue to suffer? My grandmother Dodo thought it was because the goyim were jealous. The seder for Passover (which is a shame-faced simulacrum of a Hellenic question-and-answer session, even including the wine) tells the children that it's one of those things that happens to every Jewish generation. After the Shoah or Endl?sung or Holocaust, many rabbis tried to tell the survivors that the immolation had been a punishment for 'exile,' or for insufficient attention to the Covenant. This explanation was something of a flop with those whose parents or children had been the raw material for the 'proof,' so for a time the professional interpreters of god's will went decently quiet. This interval of ambivalence lasted until the war of 1967, when it was announced that the divine purpose could be discerned after all. How wrong, how foolish, to have announced its discovery prematurely! The exile and the Shoah could now both be understood, as part of a heavenly if somewhat roundabout scheme to recover the Western Wall in Jerusalem and other pieces of biblically mandated real estate.

I regard it as a matter of self-respect to spit in public on rationalizations of this kind. (They are almost as repellent, in their combination of arrogance, masochism, and affected false modesty, as Edith Stein's 'offer' of her life to expiate the regrettable unbelief in Jesus of her former fellow Jews.) The sage Jews are those who have put religion behind them and become in so many societies the leaven of the secular and the atheist. Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir

+ 326 Jerusalem was only destroyed because its inhabitants desecrated the Shabbat, they refrained from reciting the Morning and Evening Shema, the children in the Torah day schools wasted their learning time, because they were not shame faced (to sin), because they made the minors equal to the adults, because one did not rebuke another, because they embarrassed Torah Scholars. Talmud, Shabbat 119b


+ 287 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent forth to her,—how often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks together under her wings! But you people did not want it. Jesus Christ, Matthew 23:37


+ 271 O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction.


+ 370 Animals are the lower intelligent of creatures, yet God illustrates man as one of them. Why? To demonstrate to us how careless, how thoughtless, and sometimes how cruel and low-life we can be without him. Without God, we go through a hard, disappointing, and dreadful life. We are like fearful, untrained, and bitter children that have played all day and are afraid to go to sleep at night, thinking we are going to miss out or be left out of things.

A sailor out on a stormy sea needs a strong sail and anchor for the days and a lighthouse for the nights to survive. This is a good illustration of witnessing. We draw from one another’s strength for the day and mediate on it in the nights in accordance with God’s Word.

God has faded out of the mind of this generation, we like immature children, believe that the Toyland of material wealth is a sufficient world. Yet houses, cars, and money really do not fulfill.

Abraham begot Isaac, and Isaac begot Jacob – a generation of God-fearing men. But in the next generation, God was not the God of Isaac. He had faded and became second place in their lives. Even in the mother’s womb, there was a struggle for honor and success. Jacob stole his brother’s birthright. Morals were decaying, rottenness appeared. The same things have happened with us. Our whole nation is reaping the results of a fading faith and trust, which is producing decaying morals and a decaying country. We are morally out of control. Unless we, like Jacob, who when frightened for his life desired a moral renewal, acknowledge that we are wrong and find God in the process.

We must seek God with our whole hearts. The future of this world is in the hands of the believers. God has left everything in the hands of the church. Therefore, we must witness. An evangelical team must go out and bring the people back to the Garden of Eden as God had originally planned. Grace is always available!
Rosa Pearl Johnson


+ 300 We can forgive the Arabs for killing our childern. We cannont forgive them for forcing us to kill their children… We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their childern more that they hate us. Golda Meir, Former Israeli Prime Minister


+ 290 Germany and Israel should dream together for a Middle East in which all the countries are willing to exchange the dispute of the parents with peace for their children. Shimon Peres, President of Israel


+ 341 I searched in my heart to indulge my body with wine, and my heart conducting itself with wisdom and holding onto folly, until I would see which is better for the children of men that they should do under the heavens, the number of the days of their lives. Kohelet 2:3


+ 295 I said to myself, that this is because of the children of men, so that God should clarify for them, so that they may see that they are like beasts to themselves. Kohelet 3:18


+ 266 For there is a happening for the children of men, and there is a happening for the beasts-and they have one happening-like the death of this one is the death of that one, and all have one spirit, and the superiority of man over beast is nought, for all is vanity. Kohelet 3:19


+ 239 Who knows that the spirit of the children of men is that which ascends on high and the spirit of the beast is that which descends below to the earth? Kohelet 3:21


+ 286 Should a man beget one hundred children and live many years, and he will have much throughout the days of his years, but his soul will not be sated from all the good, neither did he have burial. I said that the stillborn is better than he. Kohelet 6:3


+ 272 Because the sentence of the deed of evil is not executed swiftly; therefore, the heart of the children of men is encouraged to do evil. Kohelet 8:11


+ 262 This is the most evil in all that is done under the sun, that all have one occurrence, and also the heart of the children of men is full of evil, and there is madness in their heart in their lifetime, and after that they go to the dead. Kohelet 9:3


+ 276 For a person does not even know his time, like the fish that are caught with an inferior trap and like the birds that are caught in the snare; like them, the children of men are trapped at a time of evil, when it falls upon them suddenly. Kohelet 9:12


+ 287 Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. Just to try to be as good a father to them as my father was to me. I think about that every day of my life. Steve Jobs — On raising his children, The New York Times, 1997


+ 299 I'm sorry, it's true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We're born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It's been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much — if at all. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 270 A rabbi should not despair if people do not do as much as they should. Every parent has that with children. God is merciful. Louis Finkelstein


+ 304 I feel like in 10 or 15 years' time our children are going to look back and say, 'What? You were around when gay people weren't allowed to get married?' Scarlett Johansson


+ 219 Children are poor men's riches.


+ 302 If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game in which my name is, or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me, or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me? Karen Blixen


+ 203 When I take my children to school, I ask God to come with me as well.


+ 191 According to study performed by Tober and Carroll, indigo children function poorly in conventional schools due to their rejection of authority, being smarter than their teachers, and a lack of response to guilt-, fear- or manipulation-based discipline.


+ 231 The first part is the mind that sees Unity. It sees the Flower of Life. It sees everything interconnected in all ways. It doesn’t see anything as separate. And the second part is being centered in the heart – to be Loving. And the third thing is to step out of polarity – to no longer judge the world. Indigo and Crystal Children


+ 202 To the woman He said, I will greatly increase your anguish and your pregnancy. It will be with anguish that you will give birth to children. Your passion will be to your husband, and he will dominate you. Bereshit 3:16


+ 197 And to Shem were also born children; he was the father of all the people of the other side of the river, the brother of Japheth the elder. Bereshit 10:21


+ 178 And the younger, she too bore a son, and she named him Ben-ami; he is the father of the children of Ammon until this day. Bereshit 19:38


+ 175 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children, for I have borne a son to his old age! Bereshit 21:7


+ 181 And through your children shall be blessed all the nations of the world, because you hearkened to My voice. Bereshit 22:18


+ 188 And the children struggled within her, and she said, If it be so, why am I like this? And she went to inquire of the Lord. Bereshit 25:22


+ 197 And Rachel saw that she had not borne any children to Jacob, and Rachel envied her sister, and she said to Jacob, Give me children, and if not, I am dead. Bereshit 30:1


+ 165 So she said, Here is my maidservant Bilhah; come to her, and she will bear children on my knees, so that I, too, will be built up from her. Bereshit 30:3


+ 210 When Leah saw that she had stopped bearing children, she took her maidservant Zilpah, and gave her to Jacob for a wife. Bereshit 30:9


+ 184 Give me my wives and my children for whom I worked for you, and I will go, for you know my work, which I have worked for you. Bereshit 30:26


+ 188 But all the wealth that God separated from our father is ours and our children's. So now, all that God said to you, do. Bereshit 31:16


+ 219 And Laban answered and said to Jacob, The daughters are my daughters, and the sons are my sons, and the animals are my animals, and all that you see is mine. Now, what would I do to these daughters of mine today, or to their children, whom they have borne? Bereshit 31:43


+ 150 Now deliver me from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau, for I am afraid of him, lest he come and strike me, and strike a mother with children. Bereshit 32:12


+ 153 And he arose during that night, and he took his two wives and his two maidservants and his eleven children, and he crossed the ford of the Jabbok. Bereshit 32:23


+ 203 Therefore, the children of Israel may not eat the displaced tendon, which is on the socket of the hip, until this day, for he touched the socket of Jacob's hip, in the hip sinew. Bereshit 32:33


+ 200 Jacob lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, Esau was coming, and with him were four hundred men; so he divided the children with Leah and with Rachel and with the two maidservants. Bereshit 33:1


+ 167 And he placed the maidservants and their children first and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and her Joseph last. Bereshit 33:2


+ 184 And he lifted his eyes and saw the women and the children, and he said, Who are these to you? And he said, The children with whom God has favored your servant. Bereshit 33:5


+ 148 And the maidservants and their children drew near and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 33:6


+ 144 And Leah and her children drew near and prostrated themselves, and after them, Joseph and Rachel drew near and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 33:7


+ 172 And he said to him, My master knows that the children are tender, and the flocks and the cattle, which are raising their young, depend upon me, and if they overdrive them one day, all the flocks will die. Bereshit 33:13


+ 173 Now, let my master go ahead before his servant, and I will move at my own slow pace, according to the pace of the work that is before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my master, to Seir. Bereshit 33:14


+ 154 And these are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom before any king reigned over the children of Israel: Bereshit 36:31


+ 173 And Judah said to Israel, his father, Send the lad with me, and we will get up and go, and we will live and not die, both we and you and also our young children. Bereshit 43:8


+ 151 And your servant, my father, said to us, 'You know that my wife bore me two children. Bereshit 44:27


+ 142 And you shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near to me, you and your children and your grandchildren, and your flocks and your cattle and all that is yours. Bereshit 45:10


+ 175 And Joseph have been commanded to tell them, Do this: take yourselves wagons from the land of Egypt for your young children and for your wives, and you shall carry your father and come. Bereshit 45:19


+ 206 And Jacob arose from Beer sheba, and the sons of Israel carried their father Jacob and their young children and their wives, in the wagons Pharaoh had sent to carry him. Bereshit 46:5


+ 189 And these are the names of the children of Israel who were coming to Egypt: Jacob and his sons Jacob's firstborn was Reuben. Bereshit 46:8


+ 155 And Joseph sustained his father and his brothers and his father's entire household with bread according to the young children. Bereshit 47:12


+ 183 And it shall be concerning the crops, that you shall give a fifth to Pharaoh, and the remaining four parts shall be yours: for seed for your fields, for your food, for those in your houses, and for your young children to eat." Bereshit 47:24


+ 153 But your children, if you beget any after them, shall be yours; by their brothers' names they shall be called in their inheritance. Bereshit 48:6


+ 183 And Israel said to Joseph, "I had not expected to see even your face, and behold, God has shown me your children too." Bereshit 48:11


+ 182 But his father refused, and he said, I know, my son, I know; he too will become a people, and he too will be great. But his younger brother will be greater than he, and his children's fame will fill the nations." Bereshit 48:19


+ 179 And Joseph's entire household and his brothers and his father's household; only their young children and their flocks and cattle did they leave in the land of Goshen. Bereshit 50:8

+ 167 Joseph saw children of a third generation born to Ephraim; also the sons of Machir the son of Manasseh were born on Joseph's knees. Bereshit 50:23

+ 185 The children of Israel were fruitful and swarmed and increased and became very very strong, and the land became filled with them. Shemot 1:7


+ 183 He said to his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more numerous and stronger than we are. Shemot 1:9


+ 208 But as much as they would afflict them, so did they multiply and so did they gain strength, and they were disgusted because of the children of Israel. Shemot 1:12


+ 157 So the Egyptians enslaved the children of Israel with back breaking labor. Shemot 1:13


+ 180 She opened it, and she saw him the child, and behold, he was a weeping lad, and she had compassion on him, and she said, This is one of the children of the Hebrews. Shemot 2:6


+ 199 Now it came to pass in those many days that the king of Egypt died, and the children of Israel sighed from the labor, and they cried out, and their cry ascended to God from the labor. Shemot 2:23


+ 154 And God saw the children of Israel, and God knew. Shemot 2:25


+ 165 And now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression that the Egyptians are oppressing them. Shemot 3:9


+ 148 So now come, and I will send you to Pharaoh, and take My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt. Shemot 3:10


+ 145 But Moses said to God, Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should take the children of Israel out of Egypt? Shemot 3:11


+ 171 And Moses said to God, Behold I come to the children of Israel, and I say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? what shall I say to them? Shemot 3:13


+ 180 God said to Moses, Ehyeh asher ehyeh I will be what I will be, and He said, So shall you say to the children of Israel, Ehyeh has sent me to you. Shemot 3:14


+ 181 And God said further to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, The Lord God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is how I should be mentioned in every generation. Shemot 3:15


+ 151 So Moses and Aaron went, and they assembled all the elders of the children of Israel. Shemot 4:29


+ 173 And the people believed, and they heard that the Lord had remembered the children of Israel, and they kneeled and prostrated themselves. Shemot 4:31


+ 179 And the officers of the children of Israel whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had appointed over them were beaten, saying, Why have you not completed your quota to make bricks like the day before yesterday, neither yesterday nor today? Shemot 5:14


+ 151 So the officers of the children of Israel came and cried out to Pharaoh, saying, Why do you do this to your servants? Shemot 5:15


+ 160 The officers of the children of Israel saw them in distress, saying, Do not reduce the number of your bricks, the requirement of each day in its day. Shemot 5:19


+ 162 And also, I heard the moans of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians are holding in bondage, and I remembered My covenant. Shemot 6:5


+ 164 Therefore, say to the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will take you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will save you from their labor, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. Shemot 6:6


+ 142 Moses spoke thus to the children of Israel, but they did not hearken to Moses because of their shortness of breath and because of their hard labor. Shemot 6:9


+ 143 Come, speak to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and he will let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 6:11


+ 179 But Moses spoke before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Israel did not hearken to me. How then will Pharaoh hearken to me, seeing that I am of closed lips? Shemot 6:12


+ 165 So the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and He commanded them concerning the children of Israel and concerning Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to let the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 6:13


+ 148 That is Aaron and Moses, to whom the Lord said, Take the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with their legions. Shemot 6:26


+ 151 They are the ones who spoke to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to let the children of Israel out of Egypt; they are Moses and Aaron. Shemot 6:27


+ 151 You shall speak all that I command you, and Aaron, your brother, shall speak to Pharaoh, that he let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 7:2


+ 168 But Pharaoh will not hearken to you, and I will lay My hand upon the Egyptians, and I will take My legions, My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt with great judgments. Shemot 7:4


+ 159 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord when I stretch forth My hand over Egypt, and I will take the children of Israel out of their midst. Shemot 7:5


+ 155 And the Lord will make a separation between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt, and nothing of the children of Israel will die. Shemot 9:4


+ 149 God did this thing on the morrow, and all the livestock of the Egyptians died, but of the livestock of the children of Israel not one died. Shemot 9:6


+ 148 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail. Shemot 9:26


+ 161 And Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he did not let the children of Israel go out, as the Lord had spoken through the hand of Moses. Shemot 9:35


+ 152 So he said to them, So may the Lord be with you, just as I will let you and your young children out. See that evil is before your faces. Shemot 10:10


+ 139 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go out. Shemot 10:20


+ 153 They did not see each other, and no one rose from his place for three days, but for all the children of Israel there was light in their dwellings. Shemot 10:23


+ 168 Pharaoh summoned Moses and said, Go! Worship the Lord, but your flocks and your cattle shall be left. Your young children may also go with you. Shemot 10:24


+ 139 But to all the children of Israel, not one dog will whet its tongue against either man or beast, in order that you shall know that the Lord will separate between the Egyptians and between Israel. Shemot 11:7


+ 155 Moses and Aaron had performed all these miracles before Pharaoh, but the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 11:10


+ 134 And you shall keep this matter as a statute for you and for your children forever. Shemot 12:24


+ 133 And it will come to pass if your children say to you, What is this service to you? Shemot 12:26


+ 171 You shall say, It is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord, for He passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, and He saved our houses. And the people kneeled and prostrated themselves. Shemot 12:27


+ 134 So the children of Israel went and did; as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:28


+ 171 So he called for Moses and Aaron at night, and he said, Get up and get out from among my people, both you, as well as the children of Israel, and go, worship the Lord as you have spoken. Shemot 12:31


+ 177 And the children of Israel did according to Moses' order, and they borrowed from the Egyptians silver objects, golden objects, and garments. Shemot 12:35


+ 156 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot, the men, besides the young children. Shemot 12:37


+ 133 And the habitation of the children of Israel, that they dwelled in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. Shemot 12:40


+ 141 It is a night of anticipation for the Lord, to take them out of the land of Egypt; this night is the Lord's, guarding all the children of Israel throughout their generations. Shemot 12:42


+ 147 All the children of Israel did; as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:50


+ 116 It came to pass on that very day, that the Lord took the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with their legions. Shemot 12:51


+ 150 Sanctify to Me every firstborn, every one that opens the womb among the children of Israel among man and among animals; it is Mine. Shemot 13:2


+ 162 So God led the people around by way of the desert to the Red Sea, and the children of Israel were armed when they went up out of Egypt. Shemot 13:18


+ 149 Speak to the children of Israel, and let them turn back and encamp in front of Pi hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; in front of Baal Zephon, you shall encamp opposite it, by the sea. Shemot 14:2


+ 155 And Pharaoh will say about the children of Israel, They are trapped in the land. The desert has closed in upon them. Shemot 14:3


+ 154 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and he chased after the children of Israel, and the children of Israel were marching out triumphantly. Shemot 14:8


+ 190 Pharaoh drew near, and the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold! the Egyptians were advancing after them. They were very frightened, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. Shemot 14:10


+ 149 The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry out to Me? Speak to the children of Israel and let them travel. Shemot 14:15


+ 135 And you raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and split it, and the children of Israel shall come in the midst of the sea on dry land. Shemot 14:16


+ 127 Then the children of Israel came into the midst of the sea on dry land, and the waters were to them as a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:22


+ 138 But the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the water was to them like a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:29


+ 161 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and they spoke, saying, I will sing to the Lord, for very exalted is He; a horse and its rider He cast into the sea. Shemot 15:1


+ 167 When Pharaoh's horses came with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought the waters of the sea back upon them, and the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, Shemot 15:19


+ 164 They journeyed from Elim, and the entire community of the children of Israel came to the desert of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departure from the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:1


+ 141 The entire community of the children of Israel complained against Moses and against Aaron in the desert. Shemot 16:2


+ 186 The children of Israel said to them, If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by pots of meat, when we ate bread to our fill! For you have brought us out into this desert, to starve this entire congregation to death. Shemot 16:3


+ 146 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, In the evening, you shall know that the Lord brought you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:6


+ 157 And Moses said to Aaron, Say to the entire community of the children of Israel, Draw near before the Lord, for He has heard your complaints. Shemot 16:9


+ 141 And it came to pass when Aaron spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, that they turned toward the desert, and behold! the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud. Shemot 16:10


+ 168 I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, In the afternoon you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be sated with bread, and you shall know that I am the Lord, your God. Shemot 16:12


+ 145 When the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, It is manna, because they did not know what it was, and Moses said to them, It is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat. Shemot 16:15


+ 141 And the children of Israel did so: they gathered, both the one who gathered much and the one who gathered little. Shemot 16:17


+ 156 And the children of Israel ate the manna for forty years until they came to an inhabited land. They ate the manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan. Shemot 16:35


+ 160 The entire community of the children of Israel journeyed from the desert of Sin to their travels by the mandate of the Lord. They encamped in Rephidim, and there was no water for the people to drink. Shemot 17:1


+ 203 The people thirsted there for water, and the people complained against Moses, and they said, Why have you brought us up from Egypt to make me and my children and my livestock die of thirst? Shemot 17:3


+ 148 He named the place Massah testing and Meribah quarreling because of the quarrel of the children of Israel and because of their testing the Lord, saying, Is the Lord in our midst or not? Shemot 17:7


+ 144 In the third month of the children of Israel's departure from Egypt, on this day they arrived in the desert of Sinai. Shemot 19:1


+ 137 And you shall be to Me a kingdom of princes and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the children of Israel. Shemot 19:6


+ 197 The Lord said to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, You have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you. Shemot 20:19


+ 129 If his master gives him a wife, and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and he shall go out alone. Shemot 21:4


+ 157 But if the slave says, I love my master, my wife, and my children. I will not go free, Shemot 21:5


+ 144 My wrath will be kindled, and I will slay you with the sword, and your wives will be widows and your children orphans. Shemot 22:23


+ 152 And he sent the youths of the children of Israel, and they offered up burnt offerings, and they slaughtered peace offerings to the Lord, bulls. Shemot 24:5


+ 119 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand, and they perceived God, and they ate and drank. Shemot 24:11


+ 232 And the appearance of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire atop the mountain, before the eyes of the children of Israel. Shemot 24:17


+ 154 Speak to the children of Israel, and have them take for Me an offering; from every person whose heart inspires him to generosity, you shall take My offering. Shemot 25:2


+ 178 I will arrange My meetings with you there, and I will speak with you from atop the ark cover from between the two cherubim that are upon the Ark of the Testimony, all that I will command you unto the children of Israel. Shemot 25:22


+ 147 In the Tent of Meeting, outside the dividing curtain that is in front of the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall set it up before the Lord from evening to morning; it shall be an everlasting statute for their generations, from the children of Israel. Shemot 27:21


+ 155 And you bring near to yourself your brother Aaron, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel to serve Me as kohanim: Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar, Aaron's sons. Shemot 28:1


+ 158 You shall place the Urim and the Tummim into the choshen of judgment so that they will be over Aaron's heart when he comes before the Lord, and Aaron will carry the judgment of the children of Israel over his heart before the Lord at all times. Shemot 28:30


+ 159 It shall be upon Aaron's forehead, and Aaron shall bear the iniquity of the holy things that the children of Israel sanctify, for all their holy gifts. It shall be upon his forehead constantly to make them favorable before the Lord. Shemot 28:38


+ 160 And so it shall remain for Aaron and his sons as a perpetual allotment from the children of Israel; for it is an offering, and it shall remain an offering from the children of Israel of their peace offerings; it is their offering to the Lord. Shemot 29:28


+ 135 There I will arrange meetings with the children of Israel, and it will be sanctified by My glory. Shemot 29:43


+ 121 I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel and I will be their God. Shemot 29:45


+ 143 When you take the sum of the children of Israel according to their numbers, let each one give to the Lord an atonement for his soul when they are counted; then there will be no plague among them when they are counted. Shemot 30:12


+ 140 You shall take the silver of the atonements from the children of Israel and use it for the work of the Tent of Meeting; it shall be a remembrance for the children of Israel before the Lord, to atone for your souls. Shemot 30:16


+ 128 And to the children of Israel you shall speak, saying: This shall be oil of holy anointment to Me for your generations. Shemot 30:31


+ 140 And you, speak to the children of Israel and say: Only keep My Sabbaths! For it is a sign between Me and you for your generations, to know that I, the Lord, make you holy. Shemot 31:13


+ 88 Thus shall the children of Israel observe the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. Shemot 31:16


+ 130 Between Me and the children of Israel, it is forever a sign that in six days The Lord created the heaven and the earth, and on the seventh day He ceased and rested. Shemot 31:17


+ 159 Then he took the calf they had made, burned it in fire, ground it to fine powder, scattered it upon the surface of the water, and gave it to the children of Israel to drink. Shemot 32:20


+ 181 And the Lord said to Moses: Say to the children of Israel: 'You are a stiff necked people; if I go up into your midst for one moment, I will destroy you; but now, leave off your finery, and I will know what to do to you. Shemot 33:5


+ 107 So the children of Israel divested themselves of their finery from Mount Horeb. Shemot 33:6


+ 160 Preserving loving kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and rebellion and sin; yet He does not completely clear of sin He visits the iniquity of parents on children and children's children, to the third and fourth generations. Shemot 34:7


+ 147 That Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses and behold! the skin of his face had become radiant, and they were afraid to come near him. Shemot 34:30


+ 127 Afterwards all the children of Israel would draw near, and he would command them everything that the Lord had spoken with him on Mount Sinai. Shemot 34:32


+ 135 When Moses would come before the Lord to speak with Him, he would remove the covering until he left; then he would leave and speak to the children of Israel what he would be commanded. Shemot 34:34


+ 151 Then the children of Israel would see Moses face, that the skin of Moses face had become radiant, and then Moses would replace the covering over his face until he would come again to speak with Him. Shemot 34:35


+ 156 Moses called the whole community of the children of Israel to assemble, and he said to them: These are the things that the Lord commanded to make. Shemot 35:1


+ 116 And Moses spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, saying: This is the word that the Lord has commanded to say: Shemot 35:4


+ 135 So they took from before Moses all the offerings that the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the Holy, and they brought him more gifts every morning. Shemot 36:3


+ 143 All the work of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting was completed; the children of Israel had done it; according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so they had done. Shemot 39:32


+ 130 In accordance with all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel do all the work. Shemot 39:42


+ 103 When the cloud rose up from over the Mishkan, the children of Israel set out in all their journeys. Shemot 40:36


+ 171 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When a man from among you brings a sacrifice to the Lord; from animals, from cattle or from the flock you shall bring your sacrifice. Vayikra 1:2


+ 177 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: If a person sins unintentionally by committing one of all the commandments of the Lord, which may not be committed, and he commits part of one of them Vayikra 4:2


+ 124 Speak to the Children of Israel, saying: You shall not eat any fat of an ox, sheep, or goat. Vayikra 7:23


+ 123 Speak to the Children of Israel, saying: Anyone who brings his peace offering to the Lord, shall bring his sacrifice to the Lord from his peace offering. Vayikra 7:29


+ 126 For I have taken the breast of the waving and the thigh of the elevation from the children of Israel, from their peace offerings, and I have given them to Aaron the kohen and to his sons as an eternal statute, from the children of Israel. Vayikra 7:34


+ 129 Which the Lord commanded to give them on the day that He anointed them, from the children of Israel. This is an eternal statute for their generations. Vayikra 7:36


+ 140 Which the Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai, on the day He commanded the children of Israel to offer up their sacrifices to the Lord in the Sinai Desert. Vayikra 7:38


+ 134 And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying, Take a he goat as a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both in their first year and both unblemished, as a burnt offering, Vayikra 9:3


+ 130 And to instruct the children of Israel regarding all the statutes which the Lord has spoken to them through Moses. Vayikra 10:11


+ 149 The breast of the waving and the thigh of the raising up you shall eat in a clean place, you and your sons and your daughters with you, for as your portion and your sons' portion they have been given, from the peace offerings of the children of Israel. Vayikra 10:14


+ 127 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: These are the creatures that you may eat among all the animals on earth: Vayikra 11:2


+ 137 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: If a woman conceives and gives birth to a male, she shall be unclean for seven days; as in the days of her menstrual flow, she shall be unclean. Vayikra 12:2


+ 117 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, If any man has a discharge from his flesh, his discharge is unclean. Vayikra 15:2


+ 126 And you shall separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness, so that they will not die on account of their uncleanness, if they defile My Sanctuary which is in their midst. Vayikra 15:31


+ 111 And from the community of the children of Israel, he shall take two he goats as a sin offering, and one ram as a burnt offering. Vayikra 16:5


+ 137 And he shall effect atonement upon the Holy from the defilements of the children of Israel and from their rebellions and all their unintentional sins. He shall do likewise to the Tent of Meeting, which dwells with them amidst their defilements. Vayikra 16:16


+ 127 He shall then sprinkle some of the blood upon it with his index finger seven times, and he shall cleanse it and sanctify it of the defilements of the children of Israel. Vayikra 16:19


+ 153 And Aaron shall lean both of his hands forcefully upon the live he goat's head and confess upon it all the willful transgressions of the children of Israel, all their rebellions, and all their unintentional sins, and he shall place them on the he goat's head, and send it off to the desert with a timely man. Vayikra 16:21


+ 145 All this shall be as an eternal statute for you, to effect atonement upon the children of Israel, for all their sins, once each year. And he did as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 16:34

+ 130 In order that the children of Israel should bring their offerings which they slaughter on the open field, and bring them to the Lord, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, to the kohen, and slaughter them as peace offerings to the Lord. Vayikra 17:5


+ 135 Therefore, I said to the children of Israel: None of you shall eat blood, and the stranger who sojourns among you shall not eat blood. Vayikra 17:12


+ 136 And any man of the children of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among them, who traps a quarry of a wild animal or bird that may be eaten, and sheds its blood, he shall cover it the blood with dust. Vayikra 17:13


+ 128 For regarding the soul of all flesh its blood is in its soul, and I said to the children of Israel: You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the soul of any flesh is its blood all who eat it shall be cut off. Vayikra 17:14

+ 131 Moses told this to Aaron and his sons, and to all of the children of Israel. Vayikra 21:24


+ 134 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, that they shall separate themselves from the holy sacrifices of the children of Israel, which they sanctify to Me, so as not to desecrate My Holy Name. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:2


+ 149 Say to them: Throughout your generations, any man among any of your offspring who, while his defilement is still upon him, comes near to the holy sacrifices that the children of Israel consecrate to the Lord that soul shall be cut off from before me. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:3

+ 133 In order that your ensuing generations should know that I had the children of Israel live in booths when I took them out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 23:43


+ 146 And Moses told the children of Israel these laws of the Lord's appointed holy days. Vayikra 23:44


+ 138 Command the children of Israel, and they shall take to you pure olive oil, crushed for lighting, to kindle the lamps continually. Vayikra 24:2


+ 120 Each and every Sabbath day, he shall set it up before the Lord to be there continuously, from the children of Israel an eternal covenant. Vayikra 24:8


+ 120 Now, the son of an Israelite woman and he was the son of an Egyptian man went out among the children of Israel, and they quarreled in the camp this son of the Israelite woman, and an Israelite man. Vayikra 24:10


+ 105 And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying: Any man who blasphemes his God shall bear his sin. Vayikra 24:15


+ 130 And Moses told all this to the children of Israel. So they took the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him, and the children of Israel did just as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 24:23


+ 123 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them: When you come to the land that I am giving you, the land shall rest a Sabbath to the Lord. Vayikra 25:2


+ 137 And if one purchases from the Levites, whether a house or an inherited city, will leave the possession of the purchaser in the Jubilee, because the houses of the cities of the Levites, are their inherited property amidst the children of Israel. Vayikra 25:33


+ 100 Then, he shall leave you he, and his children with him, and he shall return to his family and resume the status of his fathers. Vayikra 25:41


+ 122 And also from the children of the residents that live among you, from them you may acquire slaves and from their family that is with you whom they begot in your land, and they shall become your inheritance. Vayikra 25:45


+ 124 You shall hold onto them as an inheritance for your children after you, as acquired property, and may thus have them serve you forever. But as for your brethren, the children of Israel, a man shall not work his brother with rigor. Vayikra 25:46


+ 119 And if he is not redeemed through any of these ways, he shall go out in the Jubilee year he and his children with him. Vayikra 25:54


+ 117 For the children of Israel are servants to Me; they are My servants, whom I took out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 25:55


+ 142 These are the statutes, the ordinances, and the laws that the Lord gave between Himself and the children of Israel on Mount Sinai, by the hand of Moses. Vayikra 26:46

+ 130 But the multitude among them began to have strong cravings. Then even the children of Israel once again began to cry, and they said, "Who will feed us meat? Bamidbar 11:4


+ 107 Send out for yourself men who will scout the Land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel. You shall send one man each for his father's tribe; each one shall be a chieftain in their midst. Bamidbar 13:2


+ 112 So Moses sent them from the desert of Paran by the word of the Lord. All of them were men of distinction; they were the heads of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 13:3


+ 103 They called that place the Valley of Eshkol because of the cluster [eshkol] the children of Israel cut from there. Bamidbar 13:24


+ 127 They went, and they came to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the desert of Paran, to Kadesh. They brought them back a report, as well as to the entire congregation, and they showed them the fruit of the land. Bamidbar 13:26


+ 119 They spread an evil report about the land which they had scouted, telling the children of Israel, The land we passed through to explore is a land that consumes its inhabitants, and all the people we saw in it are men of stature. Bamidbar 13:32


+ 127 All the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron, and the entire congregation said, "If only we had died in the land of Egypt, or if only we had died in this desert. Bamidbar 14:2


+ 132 Why does the Lord bring us to this land to fall by the sword; our wives and children will be as spoils. Is it not better for us to return to Egypt? Bamidbar 14:3


+ 98 Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before the entire congregation of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 14:5


+ 108 They spoke to the entire congregation of the children of Israel, saying, The land we passed through to scout is an exceedingly good land. Bamidbar 14:7


+ 103 The entire congregation threatened to pelt them with stones, but the glory of the Lord appeared in the Tent of Meeting to all the children of Israel. Bamidbar 14:10


+ 120 'The Lord is slow to anger and abundantly kind, forgiving iniquity and transgression, Who cleanses some and does not cleanse [others], Who visits the iniquities of parents on children, even to the third and fourth generations.' Bamidbar 14:18


+ 129 How much longer will this evil congregation who are causing to complain against Me exist? The complaints of the children of Israel which they caused them to complain against Me, I have heard. Bamidbar 13:27


+ 112 Your children shall wander in the desert for forty years and bear your defection until the last of your corpses has fallen in the desert. Bamidbar 13:33


+ 121 Moses related all these words to the children of Israel, and the people mourned greatly. Bamidbar 14:39


+ 90 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you arrive in the Land of your dwelling place, which I am giving you, Bamidbar 15:2


+ 84 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them, When you arrive in the Land to which I am bringing you, Bamidbar 15:18


+ 77 The kohen shall atone on behalf of the entire congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them, for it was an error, and they have brought their offering as a fire offering to the Lord and their sin offering before the Lord because of their error. Bamidbar 15:25


+ 101 The entire congregation of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides with them shall be forgiven, for all the people were in error. Bamidbar 15:26


+ 98 One law shall apply to anyone who sins inadvertently from the native born of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides among them. Bamidbar 15:29


+ 89 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them that they shall make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations, and they shall affix a thread of sky blue wool on the fringe of each corner. Bamidbar 15:38


+ 108 They confronted Moses together with two hundred and fifty men from the children of Israel, chieftains of the congregation, representatives of the assembly, men of repute. Bamidbar 16:2


+ 100 So they withdrew from around the dwelling of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, and Dathan and Abiram went out standing upright at the entrance of their tents together with their wives, their children, and their infants. Bamidbar 16:27


+ 95 The censers of these who sinned at the cost of their lives, and they shall make them into flattened out plates as an overlay for the altar, for they brought them before the Lord, and have therefore become sanctified, and they shall be as a reminder for the children of Israel. Bamidbar 17:3


+ 112 As a reminder for the children of Israel, so that no outsider, who is not of the seed of Aaron, shall approach to burn incense before the Lord, so as not to be like Korah and his company, as the Lord spoke regarding him through the hand of Moses. Bamidbar 17:5


+ 107 Speak to the children of Israel and take from them a staff for each father's house from all the chieftains according to their father's houses; a total of twelve staffs, and inscribe each man's name on his staff. Bamidbar 17:17


+ 87 The staff of the man whom I will choose will blossom, and I will calm down turning away from Myself the complaints of the children of Israel which they are complaining against you. Bamidbar 17:20


+ 114 Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and all their chieftains gave him a staff for each chieftain according to their fathers' houses, a total of twelve staffs, and Aaron's staff was amidst their staffs. Bamidbar 17:21


+ 91 Moses took out all the staffs from before the Lord, to the children of Israel; they saw and they took, each man his staff. Bamidbar 17:24


+ 89 The children of Israel spoke to Moses saying, Behold, we are dying, we will perish, we are all lost! Bamidbar 17:27


+ 78 They shall keep the charge of the Sanctuary and the charge of the altar, so that there be no more wrath against the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:5


+ 112 I have therefore taken your brethren, the Levites, from among the children of Israel; they are given to you as a gift, and given over to the Lord to perform the service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:6


+ 121 The Lord told Aaron: Behold I have given you the charge of My gift offerings. I have thus given you all the holy things of the children of Israel for distinction, and as an eternal portion for your sons. Bamidbar 18:8


+ 107 This shall be yours what is set aside for their gifts from all the wavings of the children of Israel; I have given them to you, and to your sons and to your daughters with you, as an eternal portion. Any ritually clean member of your household may eat it. Bamidbar 18:11


+ 97 All the gifts of the holy offerings which are set aside by the children of Israel for the Lord I have given to you, and to your sons and daughters with you, as an eternal portion; it is like an eternal covenant of salt before the Lord, for you and your descendants with you. Bamidbar 18:19


+ 83 The Lord said to Aaron, You shall not inherit in their land, and you shall have no portion among them. I am your inheritance and portion among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:20


+ 83 The children of Israel shall therefore no longer approach the Tent of Meeting, lest they bear sin and die. Bamidbar 18:22


+ 105 The Levites shall perform the service of the Tent of Meeting, and they will bear their iniquity; it is an eternal statute for your generations, but among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. Bamidbar 18:23


+ 100 For the tithes of the children of Israel, which they shall set aside for the Lord as a gift, I have given to the Levites as an inheritance. Thus, I have said to them that they shall have no inheritance among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:24


+ 114 Speak to the Levites and tell them, "When you take the tithe from the children of Israel which I have given you from them as your inheritance, you shall set aside from it a gift for the Lord, a tithe of the tithe. Bamidbar 18:26


+ 106 So shall you too set aside a gift for the Lord from all the tithes you take from the children of Israel, and you shall give thereof the Lord's gift to Aaron the priest. Bamidbar 18:28


+ 103 After you separate the choicest part from it, you shall not bear any sin on account of it, but you shall not profane the sacred offerings of the children of Israel, so that you shall not die. Bamidbar 18:32


+ 114 This is the statute of the Torah which the Lord commanded, saying, Speak to the children of Israel and have them take for you a perfectly red unblemished cow, upon which no yoke was laid. Bamidbar 19:2


+ 106 A ritually clean person shall gather the cow's ashes and place them outside the camp in a clean place, and It shall be as a keepsake for the congregation of the children of Israel for sprinkling water, used for cleansing. Bamidbar 19:9


+ 113 The one who gathers the cow's ashes shall wash his clothes, and he shall be unclean until evening. It shall be an everlasting statute for the children of Israel and for the proselyte who resides in their midst. Bamidbar 19:10


+ 96 The entire congregation of the children of Israel arrived at the desert of Zin in the first month, and the people settled in Kadesh. Miriam died there and was buried there. Bamidbar 20:1


+ 111 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "Since you did not have faith in Me to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly to the Land which I have given them. Bamidbar 20:12


+ 104 These are the waters of dispute Mei Meribah where the children of Israel contended with the Lord, and He was sanctified through them. Bamidbar 20:13


+ 115 The children of Israel said to him, "We will keep to the highway, and if we drink your water, either I or my cattle, we will pay its price. It is really nothing; I will pass through on foot." Bamidbar 20:19


+ 74 They traveled from Kadesh, and the entire congregation of the children of Israel arrived at Mount Hor. Bamidbar 20:22


+ 120 Aaron shall be gathered to his people, for he shall not come to the Land which I have given to the children of Israel, because you defied My word at the waters of dispute Mei Meribah. Bamidbar 20:24

+ 112 When you beget children and children's children, and you will be long established in the land, and you become corrupt and make a graven image, the likeness of anything, and do evil in the eyes of the Lord your God, to provoke Him to anger, Devarim 4:25

+ 110 On the side of the Jordan in the valley, opposite Beth Peor, in the land of Sihon, king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel smote, after they went out of Egypt. Devarim 4:46

+ 133 Your god, sir, is the World. In my eyes, you, too, if not an infidel, are an idolater. I conceive that you ignorantly worship: in all things you appear to me too superstitious. Sir, your god, your great Bel, your fish-tailed Dagon, rises before me as a demon. You, and such as you, have raised him to a throne, put on him a crown, given him a sceptre. Behold how hideously he governs! See him busied at the work he likes best - making marriages. He binds the young to the old, the strong to the imbecile. He stretches out the arm of Mezentius and fetters the dead to the living. In his realm there is hatred - secret hatred: there is disgust - unspoken disgust: there is treachery - family treachery: there is vice - deep, deadly, domestic vice. In his dominions, children grow unloving between parents who have never loved: infants are nursed on deception from their very birth: they are reared in an atmosphere corrupt with lies ... All that surrounds him hastens to decay: all declines and degenerates under his sceptre. Your god is a masked Death. ? Charlotte Bronte, Shirley

+ 173 From a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life: that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise; that you treat people with respect. They taught and showed me values and morals in their daily life. That is a lesson that I continue to pass along to our son, and we need to pass those lessons on to the many generation to follow because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them. Melania Trump


+ 152 The Torah enumerates the 42 encampments in "the journeys of the Children of Israel who came out of Egypt."

Baal Shem Tov


+ 203 Kabbalah is not a secret teaching. It is the teaching of a secret. “The secret teaching” means that we are trying to hide something from you. “The teaching of the secret” means that we are trying to teach something to you, to open up and reveal something hidden. Now, you might point out, if the secret is taught, it is no longer a secret. A revealed secret, it would seem, is an oxymoron. That would be so if we were discussing an artificial secret, one that is secret only because it is shrouded in secrecy, because others don’t want you to find out. True secrets, even once taught, explained, illustrated, analyzed and integrated into your consciousness, remain just as mysterious as before. No—vastly more mysterious, for as the island of knowledge expands, so too its beach upon the infinite sea of the unknowable. Life teems with such mysteries: What is love? What is mind? What is life? What is existence? How do they come to be? From where do they emerge? What is your soul, the person within your body? You experience all these at every moment. They are you. And yet, the more you gaze upon the depths of their mysteries, the deeper their waters become. The deepest of all secrets are those best known to all, that which we learn as small children, take for granted the rest of our lives, live with daily—and yet never manage to unravel or grasp with our cognitive mind. There is. Things are. I exist. I am alive. Life is not death. Darkness is not light. There is that which is bigger than me. Kabbalah plunges into these secrets and pulls their depths into the open. It provides metaphor, parable, understanding. It shines light and opens our eyes. It inspires and guides us to use this wisdom for healing and growth in everyday life. That is why the experience of learning Kabbalah is one of “Yes! I knew that truth all along! My heart knew, but my mouth was unable to speak it!” The truths of the Kabbalah belong to every sentient being. Yet, most of all, Kabbalah provides a sense of the beyond; the knowledge of that which cannot be known, the wisdom of mystery, the understanding that we do not understand. Kabbalah is the knowledge of wonder. Rabbi Tzvi Freeman


+ 108 Shut up! Which means a lot of you have been breakin' the first two rules of Fight Club. Man, I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men who have ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. Goddammit, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man; no purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our Great War is a spiritual war. Our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised by television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars. But we won't; and we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

Age to age You're still the same
By the power of the name
El-Shaddai, El-Shaddai, Erkahmka na Adonai
I will praise You till I die, El-Shaddai

+ 103 They say that children become men, and men become children. Many generations have grown up, become men, and gone hence. Sholom Aleichem


+ 102 It is an old custom amongst Jewish children, to become war-like on the 'L'ag Beomer.' They arm themselves from head to foot with wooden swords, pop-guns and bows and arrows. They take food with them, and go off to wage war. Sholom Aleichem


+ 94 Ah, how many luxuries has the good God prepared for his Jewish children. Sholom Aleichem


+ 114 Sustaining the World

by Avraham Shoar

In his youth, the writer, Avraham Shoar, was the chavruta (study partner) of Rav Kook in the beis medrash of Lutzin. He tells that young Avraham Yitzchak’s diligence was extraordinary. If a short amount of time passed without learning Torah, he felt real anguish: a actual physical pain:

One day (tells Avraham Shoar), he told me: “I have decided that two nights a week, we should learn mishmar (extended learning). Two nights a week, let us learn until dawn.”

I remember one such mishmar night, typical of the character of this extraordinary man. We were learning Chulin from the Talmud together. We were engaged in halachic dispute. I stood my ground, and we argued at length until we at last came to a shared understanding.

It was late. We were learning at the bimah. Around us was silence. In the adjoining dormitory, all the students were already asleep. Before us, burning above the holy ark, was the ner tamid—the eternal light. And we took a short rest from our toil and sat and conversed.

He said to me in a secretive voice: “Do you know, perhaps just the two of us are now sustaining the entire world. Perhaps the Holy One, blessed be He, is judging the world right now. And mankind’s sins are being considered, and they outweigh the good.

“Now the angel Michael, the one defender out of a thousand, picks up the words of our Torah learning and places them on the scale, and our words of Torah help outweigh the other side. If so, we have merited to sustain the entire world. And we are still just children. This is the first year that I am wearing tefillin, and as for you, you are not even bar mitzvah.”

As he spoke, I was lifted to the highest worlds. I could see, almost with my own eyes, the heavenly host: the fiery scale, the angels and cherubim. They were weighing the acts of humanity, and behold, they placed upon the scale the page of Chulin that we were learning, with the commentaries of Rashi, Tosafot and the Maharsha. And this page gave merit to the entire world.”

As I sat, submerged in my visions, Avraham Yitzchak’s voice continued. I heard him say with great simplicity: “A day will come when and I will be great in Torah. And then...” He touched me so that I would turn to him, and I saw his face burning, his eyes brilliant and sparkling like fiery coals set in milk. And he whispered: “I will go to the land of Israel, to the holy city of Jerusalem, and I will found a yeshiva there, like Kerem Beyavneh. And students from all over the world will gather there, and ‘from Jerusalem will come forth Torah.’”

These were the youthful dreams of Rav Kook.

These were his desires and yearnings when he had just become bar mitzvah.

Malachim Kivnei Adam, pp. 4-5

+ 109 A Jewish woman from Chelm went to the market one day to buy herring and a loaf of bread. "How much is it?" she asked the storekeeper. "14 cents," answered the storekeeper to the lady. "14! For what?" asked the Jewish lady. "I think it's 11." The storekeeper explained: The herring costs 7 cents, and the loaf of bread costs 7 cents also. So together it comes to 14 cents." "I know different. To the best of my recollection, 7 and 7 is 11." "What are your saying?" "As far as I know, 7 and 7 is 11...I had already had 4 children when my first husband died. When I married a second time, my second husband also had 4 children from his first wife. After getting married, we had 3 children together. So each of us had 7 children, and together we had 11! Obviously, 7 and 7 is 11."


+ 144 A nice Jewish girl brings home her fiance to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother tells her father to find out about the young man. He invites the fiance to his study for schnapps.
"So what are your plans?" the father asks the fiance.
"I am a Torah scholar," he replies.
"A Torah scholar." the father says.
"Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in, as she's accustomed to?" "I will study," the young man replies, "and God will provide for us."
"And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?" asks the father.
"I will concentrate on my studies," the young man replies, "God will provide for us."
"And children?" asks the father. "How will you support children?"
"Don't worry, sir, God will provide," replies the fiance.
The conversation proceeds like this, and each time the father questions, the fiance insists that God will provide.
Later, the mother asks "so nu? How did it go?"
The father answers, "He has no job and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I'm God."


+ 84 You had an excellent TEACHER, namely CHRIST who made an attempt to rectify this mistake. HE never got the chance to do so, but HE had the wonderful ability to speak in parables. A lot of things can only be explained to you in parables and I will give you just one example: You know of cases here on Earth where a deviant waylays children that have done him no wrong. He chokes these children, rapes them and tramples them to death in a most beastly way. These people act in such an atrocious way that no normal human being can understand them. There is no argument, no excuse, no mitigating circumstance and no motive that could explain such an act. I ask you: Can you make sense of such behaviourism? The same applies to experts of war. They come up with the most horrendous atrociousness. They murder and hound millions into a terrible inferno. There is no humanity here. This is directed at people who have never done anything untoward to their murderers and tormentors. These experts turn into monsters, because it has been drummed into them that this is necessary and heroic, that their humaneness actually demands this from them. We cannot understand them and we also have no explanation for this, because there will never be a plausible explanation for it. Only those responsible for wars, the military and politicians find this correct, they seem to comprehend their terrible deeds, deeds no other human being could ever comprehend. They are the victims of a terrible illogicalness, a bestial mental illness. This example shows you that only a deviant can understand himself. An insane person will always insist that he is right even when dealing with the greatest aberration. Every war is an insane aberration! Communication between extraterrestrial people and terrestrial people is made more difficult whilst battles rage on Terra. We don’t feel in a position to visit you personally in order to negotiate with your politicians. Such negotiations would bring no results. On the contrary – your representatives would try to lie to us and to deceive us; one would eventually meet us with great animosity. Ashtar
